Magic Meat March (March 1st- March 31st)

Magic Meat March (March 1st- March 31st)

Magic Meat Week is reformatting into a month-long challenge (with a theme for every day of March). We encourage all artistically inclined fans to participate and give male empowerment a shot! 

Though, as @magicmeatmarch publishes essentially every submission to its tag, we encourage all artists to be aware of potential transphobia of jokingly putting masculine characters in feminine-coded costumes and makeup. Please always be sure to not frame the humor of reversing sexualization as “that’s funny, because he looks girly”. 

While is hard to draw the line, we also encourage anyone entering to remember that as terrible as costumes for female characters often are, they generally don’t include explicit material like brazenly exposed genitalia (outside of hardcore porn). Please keep that in mind when satirizing them!

Magic Meat March (March 1st- March 31st)

Magic Meat March (March 1st- March 31st)

the-hittite:

Just so we’re clear, Chandra, Torch of Defiance wears the most practical version of her armor to date. (The least practical goes to the manga adaptation of The Purifying Fire.) But compared to the armor designs worn by other residents of Kaladesh, it seems a little out of place.

For those curious regarding the fore-mentioned manga:

Essentially the spectrum highlights the problems that happens if a company like Wizards sets a vague design for a character then tries to “fix” it (depending on their priorities on any given day) without ever changing it in a meaningful way.

In this case, if you compare to the previous images of Chandra from the official Magic the Gathering imagery, the changes are:

  • Swapped chainmail for scalemail (both of which are absent in the manga)
  • Given her more substantial faulds (which are decorative in the manga)
  • Given her a weird collar/gorget thingie
  • Added extra cloth to her loincloth and made it heavier
  • Made her boots go all the way up to (presumably) her groin
  • Given her actual hair instead of just fire

So essentially all her redesigns and attempts to redevelop her were all preemptively critiqued in 1994, by known intellectual Lisa Simpson:

This is a Yu-Gi-Oh equipment spell card. It might give the wearer a big boost in their attach stats, but what it doesn’t say on the card is that the defense of the wearer will drop even more…
(Yu-gi-oh has lots of bad cards, it’d be a bad idea to send all of them your way, but this one is so BABD-appropriate, I couldn’t hell myself)

Seeing how bingo-qualifying this… thing is, I checked out what those harpy lady sisters who can be equipped with the “shield” look like… Let’s agree the anime didn’t disappoint my morbid curiosity. Also, apparently English version of the card censored out the protruding nipple spikes:

I didn’t cross out the “More advanced armor = skimpier”, cause the harpies seem to wear this spiky atrocity on top of their usual bodypaint “clothes”:
